Fourth Friday Flix:
THE MALTESE FALCON
Sponsored by Wallace & Hinz 

May 26, 2017

Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

When a man's partner is killed, he's supposed to do something about it. And so gumshoe Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) jumps down a rabbit hole to investigate the murder of a partner he didn't even like to save a dame he doesn't really trust (Mary Astor). The Maltese Falcon (1941), Dashiell Hammett's deep noir classic directed by John Huston, is the dark fedora on top of the genre. Villains big and small — including an unctuous Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre at his most desperate and craven — are on his tail, and everyone is on the hunt for the mysterious black Maltese Falcon statue at the center of the mystery. What's the falcon, you say? The stuff that dreams are made of. 

1941 | 101 min. | Admission $5.00

NOSFERATU (1922)
with live accompaniment by The Invincible Czars!

June 14, 2017

Doors 7:00 PM | Showtime 7:30 PM

Originally released in 1922 as "Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror", this chilling and eerie adaptation of Bram Stoker's "Dracula" is a silent masterpiece of terror which to this day is a striking and frightening portrayal of the legend. As the world's first vampire movie, it is regarded as the first important horror film--but it was almost erased from the history books when the estate of Bram Stoker sued the filmmakers for copyright infringement and most of the prints of the movie were destroyed. Several survived, and this performance will feature the most completely restored version that exists.

NOSFERATU marks the 7th effort for a band that’s increasingly becoming known for its well-crafted original silent film scores. Last year, The Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe, known for hosting acclaimed silent film accompanists from around the nation, called the Czars' soundtrack for the 1929 Lillian Gish silent classic THE WIND "as good as any we've seen." In March 2015, the band were artists-in-residence at Texas A&M University, where they gave three lecture-recitals on music for film and silent film that culminated in a live performance of their score for THE WIND. They’ve also performed silent film scores at the Kimball Museum, Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum, University of Houston, and several outdoor music and film events. 

1922 | 94 min. | Admission $10.00
